Thermodynamics is easy.No student, anywhere, ever.
Thermodynamics is one of the base building blocks of education in physics or chemistry. While it dates back to the 19th century, its teaching methods don’t have to.
ETHermodynamics is software that makes it easy for students anywhere from high school to university master’s classes to simulate some of the most fundamental systems in thermodynamics.
In ETHermodynamics, you can set up an experiment involving one or two chambers, up to three pistons, with chemical reactions and multiple stages in time all. That means you can build something as simple as a chamber demonstrating the ideal gas law (arrising simply from the statistics and newtonian physics of thousands of paritcles bouncing around!) or as complex as carnot or combustion engine cycle.
After building the experiment, you can simulate it – you will get extensive output including a video of the experiment, a list of properties (such as the pressure inside a chamber, or the entropy of a gas).

In the Downloads section you can get ETHermodynamics for Mac OS, Windows and Linux. Once you have it installed, either play around with the program, or head over to the Quickstart Guide – either way: start learning!
If you are stuck or you are interested in the theory behind ETHermodynamics, you can check out the Wiki for some insight.

Thermodynamics is a highly mathematical science, whether you approach it from a phenomenological or a statistical side. However, mentally visualizing 1023 particles bouncing around and giving rise to entropy is… hard. ETHermodynamics can help you with that.
In ETHermodynamics, you can set up a system with many particles, and you can watch live as, from simply these particles bouncing around, laws such as the ideal gas law emerge.
